It may be bought for $1.00 from the Club at 813 Bryden Road, Columbus, Ohio, or the pattern may be obtained at Headquarters, 27t> Lexington Ave., New York. Peter, with his pink ears and red vest makes a most charming Easter or all-the- year-around gift for any child. Philadelphia Wellesley women have been collecting subscriptions to the Philadelphia Ledger and putting them in the name of Mrs. Woods. Accord- ing to the terms of the contest, the woman getting the largest number of subscriptions will be awarded an auto- mobile and Wellesley enthusiasts hope and believe Mrs. Woods will be the winner, in which happy event the car will be raffled or auctioned for the Fund. Everybody is doing something for Wellesley. Perhaps Jane Furber, '92, holds the prize to date for her unusu- al job. Licensed Junk Dealer! Miss Furber conceived the idea of collecting old papers, magazines, etc., and start- ed in gaily only to be informed it was necessary for her to have a license. Did it worry Jane? We'll say it did- n't! She bought her license and is on her rounds. Marie Warren Potter, '07, is agent for a genuine Murille which she ex- pects to sell with advantage to the Fund. She hopes anyone knowing of collectors who might be interested will communicate with her in care of Head- quarters. Esther Pratt, 129 Gibbs St., Newton Center, is agent for Acorn Soap which she is selling for the Fund, 2 cakes for 25c, 9 for $1.00, 12 for $1.30. Es- ther's circular reads, "It floats and it lasts" which ought to induce every Wellesley gardener to buy at least a gross. It is interesting to note that Wel- lesley husbands, brothers, and fathers are doing more and more for the cause. Smocked Wellesley men have been waiting on tables and otherwise entertaining visitors at the Madison Tea Room. Billy Baker, Princeton, and r. nephew of Mrs. Sears, arranged for the printing of the Wellesley Post- ers through the firm of Barton and Durstine, also affiliated with Welles- ley.

Three Years Defeat Wiped Out By Only Double Victory In League Wellesley debating emerged from its three years' shadow Saturday eve- ning, March IS, with a double victory over Barnard and Vassar. The judges gave their decision at Barnard unanimously and at Wellesley by a vote of two to one. The subject of the debate was "Be resolved: That the United States should further restrict European Immigration." The work of the teams showed at the same time mastery of the position they were defending and thorough knowledge of the weaknesses in their opponents' argument. Their readiness at incidental refutation was especially commendable. Wellesley's affirmative team did not defeat Vassar without great diffi- culty. The affirmative analysis was based on the two principles that Amer- ica should admit no more immigrants than could be assimilated, and no more than could be absorbed into her economic life. The segregation of these poverty stricken people in the industrial cities makes assimilation of any great numbers of them impossible. The cheapness of immigrant labor, re- sulting from ignorance and unemployment, and bringing with it a lowered standard of living, means that they are economically ndesirable. The last affirmuative speaker, Eleanor Burch, '21, proposed a plan modelled general- ly on the Welty bill now before the Senate, for the regulating the numbers of immigrants to be admitted. The negative met the affirmative squarely on the question of numbers, saying that the opposition of foreign governments, the effects of the war and the limited capacity of the steamships were all factors inevitably pro- hibiting any great influx of aliens. The negative could not agree with the affirmative as to the figures of the actual numbers of immigrants arriving. Denying the arrival of great hordes, they claimed that America has already sufficient agencies for educat- (Continued on page 2, col. 3) (Continued on page 5, col. 2) INTERCOLLEGIATE DEBATE Affirmative Negative Wellesley Barnard Vassar Radcliff Smith Mt Holyoke Vassar Wellesley Smith Earnard Mt.

Through the entire four acts, the attention of the audience was fixedly held by the amsuing situa- tion of the play and the clever char- acter interpretation. The play clear- ly showed the careful coaching of Eu- genia Brown, '21, the vice-president of the Society. The role of Jeffery Panton, a middle aged, charmingly temperamental, and historically inclined Englishman, was taken by Frieda Halsted, '21, whose acting was quite above the average in masculine gestures and mannerisms. By her characterization it was clear that Jeffery Panton enjoyed being an irritating brother and a jilted lovei, who found he could worship the mem- ory of Isabel Gervoise without incon- veniencing his work in history. Used only to reminiscences, he was more than annoyed when Isabel called to beg him to save her husband, a would be genius, from the fascinating, strange, Mrs. Gilford. On his unwill- ing errand he found a kindred spirit in this unknown woman who also loved history and was willing to help with his book. It was when he was interrupted in the writing of this book that he em- phatically pointed out to his sister, Lady Milligan, one of the most noble of the nobility and impressive of sis- ters, that although chastity is a de- sirable virtue in woman, charity is equally paramount, though less prev- alent. In the scenes between brother and sister the conversation was ludi- crously frank. The part of Lady Mill- igan, to whom birth, rank, and money were the essentials of life, was admir- ably taken by Lucile Barrett, '22, who was a typical social leader, handsome, condescending and slightly officious. Mrs. Gervoise (Isabel), who cher- ished the thought of retaining the love of Jeffery Panton, was aptly called "silly" by Lady Milligan. The stupidity and insipid sweetness of her character was excellently portrayed by Ruth Melcher, '22. The unknown woman, Mrs. Gilford, who had patiently listened to the smug, self-satisfied Claude Gervoise's (Continued on page 4, col. 2) THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS WtUt<y College J^eto* EDITOR IN CHIEF LLIZABETH M.

The lamented demise of the old News board is always the occasion for a great deal of facetious crepe hang- ing. Perhaps this is well, for ofteu leal esteem degenerates into senti- mentality when one attempts to put it into words. However, the new Board wants to pause a moment be- fore it plunges into the labyrinth of "headlines, dummies, and galley sheets, to say that the News appreciates the sane and untiring effort which the News members of the Class of 1921 have exerted in its behalf. A sense of proportion, an eye for the ridiculous, a discriminating appre- ciation, compounded with a redeeming degree of human fallibility, resulted in '21's ' contribution— a vision of a News assuming its proper place in the college community. '21 has helped the Board to glimpse this vision, and the new Board can hope for nothing bet- ter than to build well upon this foun- dation. CONCERT AND DANCE IN NEW YORK ON APRIL FOOL'S DAY Entertainment at Waldorf Astoria Another Venture for the Drive "AINT IT A GRAND AND GLORIOUS FEELING?" For the first time in four years Wel- lesley has won a debate, in fact two debates. To Eleanor Burch and Ada Haeseler, belongs the credit for this success. It was through their careful organization and management that the winning of the debate was possible. The continued interest and work of Eleanor Burch in debating througn two years of defeat deserved this year's success of the affirmative team of which she was chairman. As pres- ident of the Debating Club, she so in- creased the number of active members that there was ample material from which to choose this year's teams. The analysis of the question used by Wellesley' victorious negative team was largely due to Ada Haeseler. It was because of her coaching and su- pervision that the negative speakers at Barnard, all inexperienced in inter- collegiate debating, did such singular- ly splendid work. Too much cannot be said in appreci- ation of the officers of the Debating Club, the teams, the alternates, in fact everyone who has contributed in help- ing Wellesley win the debates. Every girl in college who boards the special on March 24, and spends vacation in or near New York is in- vited to the concert and dance at the Waldorf Astoria on April 1st, which has been arranged by the New York Wellesley Club. The University Glee Club, which is composed of graduates from thirty-eight universities and col- leges, will give this extra concert as its hearty endorsement of the Drive. The music for the dance, which will follow the concert, will be furnished by fifteen pieces from a leading New York orchestra. From the number of girls who buy their tickets early, the six most at- tractive will be chosen as ushers and program girls. These tickets which cost $3.00 may be obtained from Eliz- abeth Parsons, '22, 80 Shafer, or after vacation begins, at 137 Hicks Street, Brooklyn. The patronesses include: Mrs. Charles Evans Hughes Mrs. James Lee Laidlow Mrs. Richard Billings Miss Candace Stimson Mrs. Chas. L. Tiffany Mrs. William Fellows Morgan Mrs. Samuel Lewisohn Mrs. Benj. Harrison Mrs. Emily Calloway Hunt, chair- man of the committee in charge, asks the greatest possible support and en- thusiasm from the undergraduates. DOROTHY WILLIAMS Associate BEATRICE JEFFERSON Editors of News ing the foreigners. Finally the increa sed production that results from a large supply of labor will make the United States very valuable to Eu- rope,. This is America's opportunity to win the world market. The rebuttal of both teams was p csitive and telling. There was very little useless material, very seldom an y points left unattacked. The nega- tive failed to question with sufficient force the plan advocated by their op- ponents. The affirmative did not ans wer clearly enough Vassar's claim that the column of immigration autom atica'ly regulated itself. Yet aside from this there was an excellent clash of minds. After the debate the judges criticised the different speeches, giving the reasons by which they cast their votes. Miss Mary B. Hume, an alumna of Mt. Holyoke College, commended especially the readiness and flexibility of all the speakers. Wellesley was sup srior, she felt, in having a more intel- ligible, more apparent, brief. Each speaker summed up the points already made, and presented the points she wa s going to make. Miss Hume did not feel that the increased production argument of the negative, promising as it did greater prosperity, really met the affirmative case about the lowered standard of living. Nor did she think that the list of Americanization agen- cies presented by the negative was any real proof that the immigrants are being Americanized. It is unfortun-ate that statistics are impossible to secure. Camilla Loyall, Smith, '21, criticised the negative as being too in- terested in future speculation. The argument by which • the negative claimed that immigration did not low ;r the standard of living', by compar- ing the immigrant standard with that of South Carolina, she felt to be use- less. Nor could she see that the number of immigrants could affect very seriously the amount of production to the nation. That is a matter of tar- riff and finance. Mr. Avery, of Wellesley Hills, was the judge who voted for Vassar. The point in Vassar's favor was that their team reached a higher ethical level than Wellesley's, in argu'ng for the need of the world. It is true that the negative stopped short of the vital argument. The third speaker did not make clear enough America's moral obligation to the Euro- pean sufferers. The affirmative, however, should have met this ethical plank of their opponents, even though the lattei* did not stand very firmly upon it. A comment made by one critic was that Wellesley at last had learned to debate without overburdening the speeches with fact. Vassar, on the other hand, was complimented for her use of human,, simple illustration. The discussion was interrupted by a prolonged shout, heard all over the campus which greeted the news of Wel'esley's victory at Barnard. The Wel- les-ey team was the only negative to defeat its opponents. The success of both teams should be largely credited to the work of Eleanor Burch, '21, President of the Debating Club, and Ada Haeseler, 21, chairman of debate. The teams, their alternates and the miterial committee also deserve the TRUANT PROFESSORS Miss Scudder sailed March 2 from New York for Naples.

'He is the Greatest Christian Poet,' Says Prof. Dinsmore of Yale Since 1921 is the six hundredth an- niversary of the death of Dante, it seemed very fitting that Prof. Charles A. Dinsmore of Yale University, a noted Dante scholar, should speak to the college on March 18th. His sub- ject was "Dante: The Man and his Message." Every generation must rewrite its history; works of science are in vogue for only ten to fifteen years, before they must be revised; but poets en- dure forever. Only when truth is wedded to beauty is there immortality. Not only has the name of Dante lived The great singers of the ages are Homer, the poet of action, Shakes- peare, the poet of passion, and Dante, the poet of the precision and majesty of moral law. Homer was of the an- c : ent world; Shakespeare of our mod- ern complex civilization; while Dante was the inspired voice and interpreter of the ten chaotic centuries that fill the gap between the ancient world and Shakespeare. Not only was this great Italian the interpreter of the Middle Ages, but, according to Prof. Dins- more, he was also the first modern man. He sang of love and sin — the force of modern fiction and poetry. His was the first introspective mind — for he found his theme., the struggle of humanity, in his own soul. The common impression of Dante io that he was a vindictive man, a vol- cano flaming with indignation. This idea probably comes from his death mask which, however, exaggerates his facial characteristics. It is true that Dante was a "good hater:" he be- lieved that it was 1 his duty to hate sin just as it was his duty to love virtue. But he was lead by his admirations and his love, instead of by his vindic- tiveness. He had a sensitive nature; the world hurt him. The story of the iove of Dante for Beatrice is the noblest love story in the world. At the age of nine, he first saw her and was filled with a love that never died. Love smote his gen- ius into power. It was an ethereal and holy love,, akin to the passion of a saint for a virgin. It was the love of a great poet for a spiritual ideal. Dante's supreme purpose was to say of her what had never been said of any woman and to rear an immortal monument to her. His solution of the problem of life was the idea that love is in all things. Primarily Dante was the great lover of beauty and of divine truth. In Prof. Dinsmore's opinion, he is the greatest of all Christian poets. Like the Hebrew prophet, Dante felt called upon by God to give a def- inite message to mankind. He wrote not in Latin but in Italian, the tongue of the common people, so that his message should reach all. This mes- sage was that we should accept God's will — His will is our peace. Faith is not credulity but the look of the soul into truth. All our experiences are bound in love and find their signifi- cance in eternal love. "Our human- ity is in God and God is in our human- ity — This is the ultimate beatitude, beyond which there is no joy in this world or in the world to come." COLLEGE NOTES Miss Emily Tyler Holmes and her "fiasco" extensively entertained the college at an al fresco reception on Thursday, March seventeenth. During the past week the following resignations from societies have been accepted: Eleanor Burch, Helen Rob- ertson from Agora; Marcia Cressey, Janet Victorius from Alpha Kappa Chi ; Dorothy Avery from Zeta Alpha. In general, dissatisfaction with the present society system has been the cause of the resignations. Muriel Fritz, '20, spent the week- end in Stone. Wellesley Benefit Tea Dance. William Penn.

Phebe Gross, '21, as Frieda Gilford, was al- together lovely. Her voice was solo and rich and every action was natural and effective The audience was in hearty sympathy with Jeffery's re- newed interest in history after the coming of his new secretary. Although the parts played by Janet Ward, '22, and Dorothy Breingan, '22, were less important they stood out as the distinctive characters of Claude Gervoise and Alice Exerne. The setting of the first and third acts was in Jeffery Panton's rooms in London. His living room was in clev- er contrast with the cretonned sitting- room of Mrs. Gilford in Act II and IV. Their masculine and feminine tastes proved different in every case except for the historical books. Although Zeta Alpha has produced more perfect plays, as in the case of "The Tragedy of Nan" when a pro- fessional coach assisted, still the suc- cess achieved in "The Two Virtues." under the new dramatic plan, speaks highly for the members who so dili- gently worked to produce it. The cast was as follows: Jeffery Panton Frieda Halsted '21 Frieda Gilford Phebe Gross '21 Isabel Gervoise Ruth Melcher '22 Claude Gervoise Lady Milligan Mary, The Maid, Catherine Broadhurst '22 Bayliss, The Butler Tacy Perry '22 Bennett, Mrs. Hunt, Miss Damazy, Miss Orvis, Mrs. Irish, entertained the Faculty and Administration officers of the college at a reception in the Stone Hall drawing-room on Friday after- noon.

Although the club has a definite constitution, its purpose may be well expressed by the following quotation from the constitu- tion of the Harvard Club, with which it is to occasionally join for social functions. "To unite for their mutual benefit, (college students) of all na- tionalities, and to stimulate a sympa- thetic appreciation of the character, problem, and intellectual currents of other nations." The Wellesley Cosmopolitan Club enjoyed a most delightful evening at the Zeta Alpha house on Monday, March 7. Various American games were played and the evening ended with a marshmallow roast around the the fireplace. Although it was de- cided to keep the Club an informal or- ganization, the need and convenience of officers was keenly felt. Josephine Rathbone, '21, was elected president and Carmen Arguinaldo, '24, secretary. COLLEGE NOTE The Faculty members living in Stone, Miss Bliss, Miss Case, Miss DIED '94 Mrs. Mary J.

MASS MEETING BOOSTS FUND Miss Bates Presides "When anyone asks you if Welles- ley is a brand of soup, tell them it is superior," said Miss Bates who pre- sided over the Fund Mass Meeting in Houghton Memorial Chapel, Thurs- day afternoon, March 17. The seven- teenth was a memorable day on which to hold such a meeting for it was the fiftieth anniversary of the signing of the charter and also the date on which the fire occurred in 1914. The first speaker, Miss Margaret Eliot, 1914 college government presi- dent, told of the fire as seen by an eye witness. She drew an inspiring picture of the girls who, some of them barefoot, formed a fire line to help save what little could be reached, and of the philosophy professor who, while all her possessions were burn ing, said bravely "I have spent my life teaching that things which are seen are temporal, now we have the chance of our life to prove that the things unseen are eternal." Mrs. Eliot ex- pressed her belief that Wellesley training had helped Wellesley women to meet this crisis. The next speaker, Miss Elsie God- dard, Executive Chairman of the Fund, prepared the students to pass an examination on the Fund. Miss Goddard under whose feet grows "not grass but greenbacks" brought the report of 4,436 subscribers with a total of $767,439.77. "Easter Vaca tion is an opportunity to talk Welles- ley in 1000 different towns, and every girl is asked to do her very best to keep the progress of the drive only being sure to see the local chairman before asking for gifts." Mrs. Carl Dreyfus, Assistant Chair- man of Publicity, spoke next. "As I stood before the smoking ruins of College Hall which had been my home for almost three years, I could not be- lieve that Wellesley would survive the destructions of its home." The fact that it has survived is amply proved by the enthusiasm with which this drive is being carried on. Recurring to Miss Goddard's r>lea for the students to talk Wellesley, Mrs. Dreyfus said. "People are going to look to you for a critical estimate of what College is worth and why it deserves to be sup- ported. Learn more facts, get a more general idea of what the college is ac- complishing. Every girl can act as a personal publicity agent for the Fund. Mrs. Dreyfus also explained the pub- licity letter which "accompanied by a beautiful photograph if possible" is to be used as publicity nature for the various local newspapers. The next speaker was Alice Joy, '21, Chairman of the Undergraduate Pub- licity Committee, who urged that eve- ryone do her best to stand back of all that the committee does and to help by sending to the chairman all news of herself or friends. Following: this speech Miss Bates introduced the one "truly progressive" speaker of the af- ternoon, Mrs. Henry F. Burton. Mrs. Burton flattered the students with her compliments on undergraduate good looks and carriage, and on the person- al poise of the younger graduates. "The Wellesley atmosphere," she said, has an odor of its own, made up of oak buds for strength, pine needles for deathlessness and the earth smell symbolizing fertility." Mrs. Burtoi. closed her speech with a challenge to save 7 cents a day toward the $2,700,- 000 to pay their debt for the carriage, the spirit and the poise which Welles- ley gives.

VOL. XXIX. WELLESLEY, MASS., APRIL 13, 1921. No. 23 ALUMNAE BODY CONTRIBUTES OVER MILLION TO FUND Varied and Humorous Plans Adopted To Raise Money For Drive On March 31 st, sixty per cent of the Alumnae body (5,800 girls) had con- tribted $1,002,396! At the rate we are going with bazars, musicales, gifts and benefit sales we shall soon raise the $2,700,000 ourselves. The Glee Club Concert-Dance on April 1st at the Waldorf was a tre- mendous success as it not only cleared more than $2,000, but demonstrated that there are many very lovely Wel- lesley girls au naturel. Ideas for increasing the fund come in daily. Mrs. Wm. W. Pickard, (Alice Ross- ington, '07), 83 Whitford Ave., Nut- ley, N. J., will send postpaid upon re- ceipt of $1.00 one pound of creamy maple sugar made in the New Bruns- wick woods. Mrs. Louis Halle (Rita Sulzbacher, '07), is sponsoring another rummage sale in Jamaica the second week in April. 219 Abingdon Road, Kew Gar- den, L. I. will reach her, if one wishes to mail contributions, although local gifts will be called for. The Wellesley postcards which are miniatures of the lovely prize poster are on sale at 5c. each. Don't fail to buy a hundred. The posters them- selves sell for 50c. each, or $5.00 per dozen, or 100 for $25. One girl reports $10 per week sell- ing Wellesley gardens via telephone alone. If five thousand girls would sell five Peter rabbits or five Welles- ley gardens each day via telephone, our coffers would be exceedingly en- riched. Emily Sophie Brown, '94, who made so much money for us during the res- toration drive has agreed to read specimens of handwriting again. As Miss Brown is a member of the Con- necticut Legislature she cannot prom- ise to make a reading in less than two weeks time,, but what she has to say is worth the wait and the money. Her charge is 25c. for each specimen when sent in groups of ten or more, 50c. for a single reading, and $1 for a more extended reading of a single specimen. All who solicit specimens for Miss Brown, should see that each specimen be: 1. Written with pen and ink ordin- arily used by writer. 2. On unruled paper. 3. Signed by the writer and sex stated if not shown by autograph. 4. At least 50 words in length. 5. Accompanied by proper fee and self-addressed, stamped envelope for return.

The candidates are to be judged on the basis of write-ups of the Indoor Baseball and Basketball games and the Indoor Gym and Riding Meets. Seniors will not be considered as com- petitors. Write-ups tire to be handed in not later than five P. M. on the Tuesday nfter each event to Helen Sherman, 13 Wilder, or Mildred Durant, 501 Caze- nove. On the occasion of his last visit to Wellesley College, Mr. John Masefield, the poet, established an annual prize for the best poem written by a mem- ber of the Senior Class. This prize is an autographed copy of a book of his own poems. Those students wishing to compete for the prize this year will kindly note the following: 1. Poems must be handed to some member of the committee on or be- fore May 2. 2. An author may present as many poems as she wishes and there is no NEW INTERCOLLEGIATE ORGAN- IZATION TO FOSTER STUDY OF MODERN PROBLEMS Muriel Morris Elected President of Liberal League (Continued on page 3, coj. 1) "The purpose of our new organiza- tion", says Muriel Morris, president of the Intercollegiate Liberal League, "is to promote interest in modern questions, to develop an informed stu- dent opinion on social, industrial., po- litical and international problems." Such is the scope of the organization formed by representatives of forty- five colleges at the Convention of Lib- eral College Students held in Cam- bridge, April 2nd and 3rd. The primary aim of the League is to bring college students in touch with the practical thought and the vital problems of national and inter- national life. The national organiza- tion is to be made up of regional units which shall combine the liberal groups in neighboring colleges. This nation- al unit plans to be affiliated with sim- ilar groups abroad, "with a view to an eventual international league of college liberals." The flexibility of the organization permits any college student to become a member by paying the yearly dues of one dollar When eighty per cent of the members of any group, such as our Forum, have become members of the League, the group automatically becomes part of the regional unit, and can send delegates to the district and national conventions. A central bu- reau and an executive committee will furnish speakers, literature and other forms of assistance to the groups. In this way it is hoped that men and women of achievement may be in- duced to devote a portion of their time to lectures in colleges. The following new officers are working on a campaign for publicity and money, so that a formal secretary may be appointed in June to under- take the plans for next year: President — Muriel Morris, Wellesley. Vice-presidents — George Arkin, New York University of Law. Donald Mazer— Columbia Uni- versity. Secretaries— Mary Switzer, Radcliffe. John Rothschild, Harvard Uni- versity. Some misunderstanding seems to have arisen as to the radical tenden- cies of the organization. It intends to take no stand on the questions dis- cussed, and to be subservient to no "isms," radical or otherwise. The League bases its activities on the en- couragement of inquiry and the pre- sentation of facts in any field which is offering a problem of national or wcrld interest.

A HINT FROM TREE DAY In this year's Tree Day, in which the setting is Chinese, the committee consulted the foreign students in planning costumes and detail. Their response shows that in the past the college has failed to profit by a gold mint of enthusiasm and ability, for me thoroughness and application b enables a foreign student to ac- 1 Ush advanced work in an alien ige will help solve a knottv committee problem. Moreover, the foreign student is -anxious to learn the secret of leader - ship and executive ability, in order that her years of preparation in Amer- ica may count for the most when she returns to her own country. To aid and inspire her countrymen she must be a leader. The college must not think that simply because it has never heard for- eign students complain of a lack of opportunity for executive training they are not aware of it. One does not speak of such things, particularly "when one is a member of a quiet and courteous minority. If the busy, self-sufficient American college girl will consider both aspects of the situation, it is safe to say that increased cooperation, more efficient work, and pleasant companionship will result. "CONSISTENCY, THOU ART A JEWEL" At present there exists a manifest discrepancy between the different academic standards required for soci- ety membership and for major college offices. A prevalent, yet unanswered, ques- tion is, 'Why does a girl's academic standing allow her to assume the enormous responsibilities of a nine point office and yet perhaps debar her from membership in a society?" Another angle of the question is ex- pressed by the query, "Do we wish to confer the responsibility and honor of an important college office on a girl whose grades are not high enough for society membership?" These are situations which have often occurred, but still remain de- bated by the comparatively small group who chance to feel the immedi- ate consequences. Society membership is regulated ac- cording to a fixed academic standard which is well known to be above di- ploma grade, although the actual numerical mark is kept secret. On the other hand, only diploma grade is necessary for holding any sort of col- lege office, whether one point or nine. As a result a girl is allowed to hold even the presidency of an all-college organization or of her class while the academic work does not allow her membership in a society. There are two solutions for this in- consistency; one, to lower the aca- demic requirement for societies to di- ploma grade, and another, to raise the standard required for the holding of major offices to coincide with that of society elgibility. The first is not only unsatisfactory to many of the faculty but also to some of the societies. However, it constitutes a fairer plan than now exists. The latter plan is more in- volved. Since it is obviously not nec- essary to raise the academic require- ment for all minor office holding, some amendment to our present pointing system might be made. At present, the pointing system is arranged according to the amount of work in each office. It would be only reasonable that the academic basis be graded also in such a fashion that the present requirement of diploma grade continue for offices of one to five points but a slightly higher standard for those of six to nine points. By making this standard equivalent to that almost mythological grade which constitutes society eligibility, the or- iginal objection will be eradicated. Wellesley Japanese Girls Rehearsing Native Plays to be Given April 23 A bit of time east is to be brought to the stage of the barn, April 23. The Japanese girls of Wellesley are re- hearsing two of their native plays which will give us an enlightened idea of etiquette in Japan. The first of the two plays has been written by the girls themselves, and is a dramatization of the Japanese fable, "Rip Van Winkle." Given in their native language, it will be unin- telligible to most of the audience, but promises entertainment and an actual knowledge of Jananese acting. "The Melon Thief," an interlude, will be given in English, translated literally from the original. In addi- tion to the two plays there will be a prologue dance, and an overture played on the Japanese harp. The scenery is to be painted by a Japanese artfst, and the costumes are being made historically correct. All four girls, Kikue Ide, who is chairman of the entertainment. Matsuyo Takiza wa, Yoshi Kasuya, and Yiki Domoto, worked on their costumes during vaca- tion to make them according to the age and the style of the times they represent. The fact that only four girls are un- dertaking so much shows their desire to help Wellesley and to give to girls who have never seen Japan some true conception of it. The entire proceeds of the two performances, afternoon and evening of April 23, are to be given for the Semi-Centennial Fund. UNIQUE AND ORIGINAL STUDIO TEA Shopping Made Easy for the Benefit of the Fund The announcements of a Costume Studio Tea at the residence of Mrs. W. H. Blood, Jr., 147 Grove Street, Wellesley, on Monday, April 11, cor. veyed only a hint as to the delightful originality of the idea. In reality the tea was a miniature shopping expedition carried on under the most favorable conditions. Speak- ing of her plans, Mrs. Blood said, "I conceived the idea because of the great inconvenience of shopping, the place being modelled after that of an exclusive Fifth Avenue shop. I planned a little costume, a gown and a hat, and secured the exclusive use of some lovely English prints recently imported. I found a woman to make up the dresses along simple lines and secured enough advance orders to have living models wearing the cos- tumes to act as reception committee at the tea." The house was decorated in Forsey- thia and red maple. Coffee was served from 10 to 1 and tea from 2 to 7, small tables being placed in the dining room for the convenience of the shop- pers. In the afternoon the college orches- tra played and the college girls served while in the morning the Pine Manor girls had charge. $2,700,000 was realized from the special Wellesley performance of "Abraham Lincoln" for the Fund. Dr. Bancroft, the highest bidder for the poster at the Faculty Play, has presented it to the Library for the Historical Collection. Isabel Whiting, '18, has completed her work for her M. A. in Columbia University. Her thesis is on "The Political Theories of Oliver Cromwell. Helen Parker, '21, has been awarded a scholarship for graduate work in Chicago Universitv. The Whitin Observatory will be open to the members of the College. Friday evening, April 15, from 7:30 to 9:30. If the sky be clear the moon and planets will be shown. An undergraduate committee under the direction of Miss Manwaring, has been formed to advance the campaign for the Endowment Fund in college. The members of the committee, of which Alice Joy, '21, is chairman, are Margaret Byard, '22, Lucille Barrett. '22, Margaret Hoogs. '23, and Jean- ette Johnson. '24.

RECENT GIFTS TO THE LIBRARY The birthday of Alice Freeman Palmer, February 21st, was this year as usual a red letter day for the Lib- rary, as it again received a gift from Professor Palmer, who, in spite of the storm, came himself to bring forty volumes forming the collection of first editions of the works of Byron, some of them enriched with valuable auto- graphs. Mr. C. E. Goodspeed also aa'ded to the Ruskin collection recently a series of portraits of Ruskin representing him from early manhood to old age. When the Boston Ruskin Club visited the Library, March 7th, these made a very appropriate decoration for the Treasure Room and were much en- joyed by the Club, who were enthusi- astic over the whole Ruskin collection presented by Mr. Goodspeed last June. THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS SHERWOOD EDDY DISCUSSES WORLD CHAOS o Was Moseley? E was a young Oxford man, only twenty-seven when he was killed at Gallipoli. Up to his time, man had never seen the inside of an atom. He turned the X-rays on matter — not figuratively but literally — and made them disclose the skeleton of an atom just as certainly as a surgeon makes them reveal the positions of the bones of the bocfy. Moseley proved that all atoms are built up of the sams kind of matter. He saw, too, just why an atom of copper is different from an atom of gold. Atoms are built up of electrons. Each atom consists of a nucleus, a kind of sun, with a certain number of electrons grouped about it, like planets. Moseley actually counted the number of electrons of all the metals from aluminum to gold. When you discover what gold is made of or a new fact about electricity, you open up new possibilities for the use of gold or electricity. For that reason the Research Labora- tories of the General Electric Company are as much con- cerned with the "how" of things — atoms and electrons, for instance — as they are with mere applications of the electric current. Hence Moseley's work has been continued in the Re- search Laboratories, with the result that more has been learned about matter. How does water freeze? What is lead? Why are lead, iron, gold and tungsten malleable? Such questions can be answered more definitely now than ten years ago. And because they can be answered it is possible to make more rapid progress in illumination, in X-ray photography, in wireless telegraphy, and in elec- trical engineering as a whole. There would have been no coal-tar industry without the vast amount of research conducted in organic chemistry, and no electro-chemical industry without such work as Sir Humphrey Davey's purely scientific study of an electric current's effect on caustic potash and caustic soda. Sooner or later research in pure science always enriches the world with discoveries that can be practically applied. For these reasons the Research Laboratories of the General Electric Company devote so much time to the study of purely scientific problems. General Office Schenectady, N. Y.

Littlehales, 2132 LeRoy Place, Washington, D. C. U. S. Held to be in More Serious Condition than England Mir. Sherwood Eddy spoke on the challenge of the present world situa- tion in the Chapel on Thursday eve- ning, April 7. Mr. Eddy has just rt turned from a study of the conditions of the Asiatic and European nations. The disorder in the world today is, like that which has followed every great war. Mankind is on the march: it is passing from autocracy to dem- ocracy. Great changes are taking place. The question is whether these changes will come by revolution or by evolution. In England, in spite of strikes and differences, capital and labor are coming together on common grounds of humanity and Mr. Eddy feels sure they are going to avoid rev- olution. To Mr. Eddy the situation is Amer- ica is more serious than that of any other nation. The difficulty in this country is that the control of the wealth is in the hands of the few. The sugar, oil, automobile, meat-pack- ing, tobacco and other great indus- tries are controlled by a small num- ber, and, as ownership of land, there are large privately-owned estates in the west that are ten times the size of the largest estate in Britain. On the other hand, there are in the United States now four million unem- ployed men. In normal times, there are always ten million people in pov- erty. These constitute the social and industrial problem of the nation. Mr. Eddy says we are drifting blindly and unpreparedly into a great crisis. A solution must be found. Socialism will not do it; no paper system will do it; there must be a new spirit, a new attitude. In the great social principles of Jesus, the solution is to be found. These principles are personality or the infinite worth of man, brother- hood, service, liberty, justice, account- ability, and the golden rule — to do as we would be done by. All are summed up in one word — love. Instead of this, the prevailing theory of life seems to embody possessions, strife, personal profit, injustice, selfishness and the rule of gold — all summed up in hate. These two theories represent ideal- ism versus materialism, the Christian versus the pagan. As great examples of the success of experiments where these principles have been applied to industry, Mr. Eddy spoke of the co- operative movement in Great Britain, whose membership has grown from twenty-eight members to fifteen mill- ion; he also spoke of a factory in Cm cinnati where fairmindedness and the cooperation of employer and em- ployees have resulted not only in their mutual benefit but in benefit to the whole industry. All these problems need for their solution the minds of thinking men and women. Here, said Mr. Eddy, opportunity waits the students of America. 4 THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS dbercrombie & Fitch Co EZRA H. FITCH, President Madison Avenue and 45th St., New York.

SNOOK'S LECTURE ON "GORTON'S CODFISHNOBONES" (A Write-up Dreamed by Our Special Correspondent at a Lecture) Under the auspices of the depart- ment of Boneology, a stupefying lec- ture was mumbled to an audience re- quired by several departments to be present, on Friday, the thirteenth, P. M., right after dinner,, a few minutes before the faculty arrived at Billings. Professor Snooks, observed the girl behind us, has brown whiskers and is from Harvard University. (Adv.) He has thoroughly digested his subject and easily carried away the interest of his audience. The main point of the lecture seemed well-expressed by the student on our left, who whispered over and over to herself "In Case of Fire Walk Do Not Run to the Nearest Exit." In support of this point, many in- stances were cited, and the speaker even took the trouble to show slides, upside down. These, he explained, were more difficult of execution than slides right side up. After the thunders of applause at this maneuver had passed away, the lecturer further stated that it remind- ed him of an incident of his childhood, wherein his Sunday school teache* asked the class of little boys. (See The American Boy, April 1898.) So great was the laughter that greeted this anecdote, that janitors with sprinkling cans were rushed to the scene to quell the hysteria. Sel- dom has a lecturer at Wellesley found his audience so demonstrative. At the close of Professor Snooks' re- Dr. Chas. A.

PROFESSOR WRECKS BEECH UPHOLDS TREE DAY "What," interrogated the reporter expectantly, simultaneously opening her arctics and note-book, "is your opinion of Tree Day?" The w. k. tree authority replied as follows: "Tree Day, my girl, has never at- tained to those ideals for which those who know and love trees have been ever striving. I pass over those Tree Days of bygone years which it has been my privilege to consider failures. Should the Wellesley authorities rel- egate to me the directing of Tree Day festivities this Spring, I should indub- itably make of them an unforseen suc- cess." "What," queried the reporter, strok- ing the panting Adonais to quiet his yelps, "would be your method of pro- cedure?" "First," reiterated Mr. Beech, point- ing to the quivering hound, "I should allow no barking at Tree Day, and Freshmen, evergreen, should be chained to Elms, Birches, or Maples. Now as for Tree Day itself. All the students' trunks should be brought from the dormitories by Mr. Oakes and his staff and placed in a semi- serious array on Tower Court Hill. To this should be added elephant trunks from the Zoo. Lab. Students representing branches of learning, their limbs arrayed in leaves of ab- sence — " But Adonais at' this juncture fled precipitantly, and the reporter, se- curely tied to the other end of the leash, dogged his footsteps. SILVER BAY The Intercollegiate Conferences at Silver Bay and Maqua bid fair to be even better this year than usual. Courses are planned dealing with the problems of the college woman, the position of the church in the world to- day, fundamentals of Daily Living, lectures in World Fellowship and Christian fundamentals. There will also be the usual .student mass meet- ing-, and discussion groups. Before leaving Wellesley every girl should go to either Silver Bay or Maqua. College girls tend to become local and self-centered, and these confer- ences offer the opportunity of meeting other colleges and learning their prob- lems. For those who are interested. further information will te postei on the C. A. bulletin board. If there are any questions, see Elizabeth Rand. 319 Cazenove. WE HAVE THE BEST The Wellesley Fruit Co.

Burt & Co. 32 Wast Street THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS WELLESLEY DELEGATES TC NATIONAL CONFERENCE (Continued from page 4, col. 2) A. A. SPELLING MATCH WON BY FRESHMEN held and the first attended by Wellesley delegates. "The best part of the con- ference," continued Maud Ludington, "was the opportunity to 'give and take' good ideas. Membership in the A. C. A. C. W. does not require col- leges to adopt any of the plans sug- gested at the conference, but if we find that a college in Minnesota has a better system of awarding points, we naturally feel that it would improve our A. A. to adopt it." The purpose of the organization ir, to standardize American women's ath letics and to form a central basis upon which to work in deciding intercolle- giate matters. The prestige of such an organization, moreover, as repre- senting the athletic majority of Amer- ican university opinion is necessarily great, and its decisions, though not compulsory in their operation, carry with them corresponding weight. Standardization of the point sys- tem, transferring of points from one college to another and arrangements for coming conferences were some of the many matters discussed at the conference. A debate on the question of using Spalding's official basket-ball rules, a swimming meet won, with the help of Mildred Durant, '22, unofficial delegate, by the Eastern colleges, a tea, a reception, a dance drama given by Indiana, and a final banquet filled up whatever time was not consumed in conference. The two delegates, both of whom were entertained at the private home of Professor and Mrs. Frank Wood- burn of the University of Indiana, re- turned testifying to a delightful two days and a glorified idea of Welles- ley's A. A. "Neither of us had any idea," said Mildred Durant, "how fa- vorably our athletic association would compare with those of big western colleges. After I had spoken a few minutes at one of the meetinge about our A. A. I was besieged with people who wanted to know more about it." Proceeds Go to '24 for the Fund The eighth grade atmosphere was effectively created Saturday evening at an old-fashioned spelling-bee given in the Barn by A. A., to help the Fund both financially and by public- ity. Marcia Cressey, '21, as "Teacher" introduced the visiting trustees, who occupied the platform in awful dig- nity and beamed condescendingly upon each earnest pupil. "Teacher" then announced that to the child who stood up longest would go the proceeds of the whole affair, for her class. Ten representatives were chosen from each class, '21, and '23 against '22 and '24. Some confusion was caused by certain unruly small boys, in the persons of Barbara Bean, '21, Leslye Thomas, '21, and Carr Igle- hart, '22_. whose whispering and fist fights required several reprimands from teacher. The class bore up nobly through the comparatively simple words in the speller, but when "Teacher" fell back on the dictionary, many fell by the wayside. The slaughter occa- sioned by "picromel" was appalling. The suspense was tremendous as only two on each side were left, and the audience of the fallen felt obliged to relieve its feelings by singing the classic "School Days." Three of the remaining four went down on "onomatopoeia" and Beatrice Wyer, '24, triumphantly gave the correct version and received congrat- ulations with becoming modesty. Some of the children then spoke pieces, and Carr Iglehart and Barbara Bean as brother and sister gave a duet about Samuel and his solitary "camuel" which was immensely pop- ular, particularly after the entrance of the "camuel." Leslye Thomas caused "Teacher" a good deal of un- easiness by being at once drunk and feeble-minded for her classmates' en- tertainment. Aimee L. Bettman re- cited a sad little poem about a beau of hers and then "Teacher" obliged by giving "Hamlet" and "The Minister," which were received with enthusiasm. The party broke up with the Vir- ginia Reel, followed by the customary jazz, as furnished by a five-piece or- chestra. It is estimated that about thirty dollars were cleared from the admission fees of fifteen cents and the sale of lollypops and this amount will go to 1924's credit to help along the Fund. APPOINTMENT BUREAU OFFERS POSITIONS FOR SENIORS Details regarding positions men- tioned in this column will be fur- nished by the Secretary of the Ap- pointment Bureau in response to in- quiry by letter or in office hours, No. 1, Administration Building. The pre- fixed number should be mentioned. 123. The Secretary of the Appoint- ment Bureau has been asked to sug- gest candidates for appointment un- der a school system in a city of Colo- rado. The salaries are good and the location one of much beauty and fine opportunities. 124. Someone able to teach English and either French or German is need- ed for a school in one of the chief cit- ies of China, preparatory to a med- ical school in the same city,, under the management of American trus- tees. The position is thus not strict- ly in missionary work. The period of service is two years and the salary is to be about $3000 with some further allowance for rent and probably for travel. 125. An executive agent for a county child welfare board is needed in a middle-west state. The quest is for someone who has had such training in child and educational psy- chology as to be able to give mental tests as well as to meet the other duties of the position. 126. A position with opportunities for training is offered in a charitable organization in southern New Eng- land. The salary would be fair and the opportunity of advancement well worth while. S.
